Business managers have long learned to observe individual LOB performance, strategies and characteristics to ensure they are in sync with each other in order to make investment, divestment and hold decisions. Likewise, IT managers should use a portfolio approach to assess assets, returns and risks in the IT landscape to derive top value from IT investments.

By associating application and project costs with business capabilities, you can match IT spending to business drivers to get a 360-degree, integrated view of your enterprise.
